    The Soviet Union's collapse into independent nations began early in 1985. After years of Soviet military buildup at the expense of domestic development, economic growth was at a standstill. Failed attempts at reform, a stagnant economy( after Stalin's economics collectivizations, there wasn't really anywhere to go), and war in Afghanistan led to a general feeling of discontent, especially in the Baltic republics(Georgia) and Eastern Europe(slavic regions that weren't necessarily in tune with the Kremlin).

    Greater political and social freedoms, instituted by the last Soviet leader, Mikhail Gorbachev, created an atmosphere of open criticism of the Moscow regime. The dramatic drop of the price of oil in 1985 and 1986, and consequent lack of foreign exchange reserves in following years to purchase grain profoundly influenced actions of the Soviet leadership.

    Several Soviet Socialist Republics began resisting central control, and increasing democratization led to a weakening of the central government. The USSR's trade gap progressively emptied the coffers of the union, leading to eventual bankruptcy. The Soviet Union finally collapsed in 1991 when Boris Yeltsin seized power in the aftermath of a failed coup that had attempted to topple reform-minded Gorbachev.

    George Bush is getting attacked because he just about destroyed capitalism and the economy. He did nothing to promote free enterprise. In fact we lost more manufacturing jobs during his watch than any time in history. There was the greatest transfer of wealth during GWBs presidency.

    Come on man. They need a hero to worship and without Reagan they would have to settle for Nixon.

    It has been argued that Reagan actually extended the cold war.

    The fact is Reagans boom to the economy lasted four years and then we went into recession. That is a fact you can not deny. Reagan was not a saviour. Just an average president that some of you guys put on a pedestal.

    Funny how you give Reagan all the credit for a good economy yet blame congress for a bad economy.
    I find it best to look at things unbiased and nonpartisan. It really is the only way to know the truth. You remind me of the democrats that think Clinton was the greates president ever.
    I give Reagan the credit because it was Reagan that proposed the tax cuts and then sold a Democrat Congress to pass it. IMO, Reagan was the Greatest President in my lifetime. I have no use whatsoever for Clinton.

    Well, we had eight good years under Clinton and only four under Reagan so the Clinton lovers have that to gloat about. I agree Clinton was as bad as Reagan in my book.

    Reagan could have been the greatest president ever, if not for his deficit spending, his cutting and running in Lebanon, all the criminals under him, the savings and loan collapse, raising tax on SS and his traitorous acts of dealing with terrorists.

    Gorbachev disagrees with you and gives Reagan credit but then what does he know
